Storyline:National News

The usage of the Somali shillings is expected to be back in circulation in the local market in Guri’el town by the business community under the supervision of the moderate Islamic movement known as Ahlu Sunnanh wal Jama’ah.

Earlier the local business community refused the circulation of the Somali shillings in line with Hiran region some days ago.

It was yesterday when the local administration arrested several business people in Dhusa Mareeb town in Galgadud region in connection with the refusal of the traders to accept Somali shillings as the legal tender for business dealings.

In the same breath, local labours and workers in the town demonstrated yesterday demanding overhaul change to the current currency for them to continue with their normal lives.
